What is your favorite evangelical bumpersticker

What is your favorite bumpersticker the evangelicals put on their vehicles??? My favorite is "Warning: In case of rapture, mother in law will be grasping for steering wheel".
Troparion - Tone 1:
O Sebastian, spurning the assemblies of the wicked,You gathered the wise martyrs Who with you cast down the enemy; And standing worthily before the throne of God, You gladden those who cry to you:Glory to him who has strengthened you! Glory to him who has granted you a crown!

I like the variation one which reads "In case of rapture, can I have your car?"

It's kinda like the greeting cards crafted by a Fundamentalist group that they plan to have distributed by atheists after the Rapture.  The card says, "Told you so."

Other - I remember seeing some decent funny ones, but can't remember them at the moment.  I dislike most of those listed except for the "Jewish Carpenter" and "Jesus fish eating Darwin" ones.  The others are...lame besides heretical.

I saw [Jesus fish] N'Chips once.

....(did some internet research)...

Here are some I like:
If going to church makes you a Christian, does going to the garage make you a car?
'Do whatever He tells you to do' - Mary
About that 'love thy neighbor' thing? I meant it -- God.
Christians aren't perfect... just forgiven.
Did you thank God today?
Don't blame God for the things that people do
God doesn't support Road Rage!
How's my driving?.. Pray!


In response to WWJD?, the best response I heard, and it was more of a discussion among Orthodox, I heard Fr. Gregory Jensen (for those who know him) say, "He would die, naked on a cross and humilated."

But you probably weren't actually there when he said, were you.   ;)

No, I wasn't there when he said that, but...I sure can hear him saying that based on other things he's said! ;)

And yes, last I heard...he was doing well in PA, but since I haven't heard anything about him in a year, he may be in a totally different location now. I also hope he's doing well...he's always a good one to bounce an idea off of!

Perhaps the most common and universal bumper siticker found on evangelical's cars is "Bush/Cheney".

So in order to be a good little "Orthodox" liberal now, we had to vote for someone that STILL violates all we hold dear?  I am not an evangelical, and I don't play one on tv.  Raised as one, but  never was a good one.  Last I recall, taking my money and spending it on tripe, and aborting new life didn't make the opponent a better Orthodox bet. If being Orthodox means I have to give up respecting life, values, morals, and blindly hand my money to beauracrats, you can have Orthodoxy back as it's no better. You guys aren't being very nice about people's sincerely held beliefs.  If nothing else, feel sorry for the protestant sector, they have NOTHING else to hold on to besides those rapture stickers. (annoying though they are)  Can you for one minute imagine having that as a crutch and hope for years, and having it ripped out from under you well into adulthood?  It's like having no oxygen suddenly rolling around untethered in space.
Remember, all they have is a small sliver of the truth-the same protestant truths the country held at it's founding for the most part.  Like it or not.
Haven't seen a good ORthodox bumper sticker that wasn't just as arrogant and snarky.  "Orthodoxy-we wrote your Bible" isn't any better.  I would even go for a snarky one if it was any good!

Agreed. Can't say either party is too interested in real morality.

Your reading too much into it. In the past I have always voted republican, I have never voted democrat in my life (though I will be voting for some democrats in the next election, but that is a subject for a different board). I was just pointing out how evangelicals have a high concentration of "Bush/Cheney" stickers on their cars. I think it is funny. It doesn't mean they are bad people. I used to think being christian and republican went hand and hand. I think differently now.

uh oh, what is this former "fundie" supposed to be driving?  I am aiming for a 12 passenger van with ghost flames, fat tires, and a bumper sticker that says "my other car is an invisible jet". (big families have little in the way of exciting options) The license plate is a homeschool one with "abnrml" on it.  ;D  I don't fit in the protestant large family expectations  well either. LOL!  If I could add some snarky ORthodox stickers that would only help, once people get over counting how many of those little people clings I have on the back window.  I am embracing my "breeder" status since everyone has such an issue with it.  Right now I still have the old Burban, with NO stickers anymore.  Al Gore would pass a kidney if he knew how much gas guzzling goes on here. 
Besides, there isn't enough room for stickers on those little econobubbles.  Is there a good place to get annoying bumper stickers?  I might as well irritate the protestants a little, they keep taking issue with me anyway.

I do not intend to hijack the thread, but I respectfully disagree.

I was forced to have to live in Boston.
For 3 years.
Driving Greek students and visitors around as one of my assigned seminary tasks.
In a part of town dominated by Greeks.

Now, that situation is bad driving! :D

I have to agree with both you and Bagpiper. I visited Boston for a week during the Big Dig construction, when the highways were all but defunct and the tunnels were not yet finished. People invented extra lanes--shoulder, sidewalk, insides of buildings (okay, not the last one).

Other than Boston, I have to agree with Springfield as the worst driving climate I've ever experienced--and Springfield is a grid, with no rivers, lakes, or oceans to screw up the road system! It's bizarre how no one here can figure out how to drive. If people in California can make that mess workable, we have no excuse. At least Boston can claim the Atlantic is in their way.

Then I agree that Springfield is bad but that Boston is worse. So, therefore, Springfield is not the worst driving climate in the world. You're wrong. :)

Then I agree that Springfield is bad but that Boston is worse. So, therefore, Springfield is not the worst driving climate in the world. You're wrong.


Hey son, it's pretty bad out here. Being from California and a NORMAL driver, I have to control my road rage tendencies with these idiot drivers out here in the midwest. Sheeesh, don't these people have like driver's education or anything to teach them how to drive.... ::)

Possibly off-topic, but I really get peeved about the tailgating bumper stickers in general. I nearly always read them when I'm stopped behind someone at a light, and they always have an enormous attitude in them. I wonder whether people could just stop caring about what other drivers around them do and just focus on their own...oh, I see. That's why.

I think a cool bumpersticker would be

Roman Catholic Church..Est. 1054 A.D
Troparion - Tone 1:
O Sebastian, spurning the assemblies of the wicked,You gathered the wise martyrs Who with you cast down the enemy; And standing worthily before the throne of God, You gladden those who cry to you:Glory to him who has strengthened you! Glory to him who has granted you a crown!

Why?  Others would be sure to follow
The Orthodox Church...Est. 33 A.D.
The Lutheran Church...Est. 1517 A.D.
The Anglican Church...Est. 1536 A.D.
The United Methodist Church..Est. 1736 A.D.
The United Church of Christ...Est. 1956

Should we also make some for the Nestorian and non-Chalcedonian Churches?

Armenian Orthodox Church...Est. 554 A.D.

Where will it end and what purpose would that serve?

I think those would be awesome bumper stickers too! The Orthodox church est 33A.D is already a bumper sticker. Our church bookstore used to sell them.

As to where will it end?? The answer is never! The fun never ends! The purpose? Humor!

The best one would be the Baptist church sticker. "Est. 5 B.C., dissolved 35 A.D., then restarted at a fried chicken dinner sometime around 1880, we don't remember exactly, but it was definitely during my great-grandmother's lifetime because that's where she learned to make her famous fried chicken."

I voted "Jesus fish eating the Darwin fish" because I used to have one on my car.  No, I wasn't an avid creationist (more of a, "God did it and that's all that matters" person).  But the Darwin fish had just started popping up on cars, and it really annoyed me.

If nothing else, feel sorry for the protestant sector, they have NOTHING else to hold on to besides those rapture stickers. (annoying though they are)  Can you for one minute imagine having that as a crutch and hope for years, and having it ripped out from under you well into adulthood?  It's like having no oxygen suddenly rolling around untethered in space.

I'm new here, and now you've got me curious.  Please explain?

I notice there are lots of rapture bumper stickers.  Protestants stick to this doctrine as devoutly as they believe in Christ himself.  It is a 'get out of end times and all your problems' card you get to flash eventually.  Truthfully, it brings comfort to many who have struggled against great adversity in their lives, people who had things done to them as children, those with disease, you can keep picturing people that would adamantly cling to this belief.  They have already struggled so much just to survive against all odds, then to have to face all that was purported to happen during the end times (tribulation)  Emotionally they could not bear the thought of going through those times, and if there were no need to then so much the better.
While I was still pondering the whole issue of the Theotokos and fasting, it came to my attention that there was no rapture.  None of the things I was initially struggling with could I defend, the truth was right in front of my face.  When my dh's godparent mentioned there was no theological support for the rapture I felt that tether snap.  When I could not prove its existence, the rug was ripped out from under me.  Being of relatively sound mind, I slowly began to see how long I had been misled into believing this and how deceptive the enemy can be.  Scripture was used to support the rapture all along, but even that is vague and twisted to support their cause.
Gradually I stopped spinning in space, and came to rest within Orthodoxy.  It might be particularly limited to the female experience in coming to the faith.  Whereas men can rush headlong into Orthodoxy like running straight away into a cold ocean, women slowly test the waters and immerse themselves bit by bit. (About a year later I read this comparison from Frederica so I know it's probably not just me)
Depending on how indoctrinated you are into the protestant realm, the more upheaval it causes to be suddenly illuminated by the light of truth.  The rapture, seen as a reward for your faithfulness, could therefore be a bit difficult to lose and probably more difficult still to admit you once believed in it.  A matter of loss, and then a matter of "how could I have been so stupid!"
My mother is watching us, and has repeatedly asked me questions toward this topic, and I don't want to burst her bubble as harshly as mine was burst.  ;D Her life has been great sorrow and pain, but the truth is the truth.  Maybe my reaction was particularly female, but I did note a great deal of consternation on dh's part in other matters. This from two people who had been searching for a long time, so I can't imagine someone that isn't ready for illumination hearing this rather bubble bursting news.

I think I know what you mean about women "testing the waters."  It took me a year of study--and many times of saying "There's no way I can become Orthodox"--before I finally stepped foot into a Greek Orthodox Church.  I've been a catechumen for almost 9 months now, but I'm still a bit cautious, not jumping into chrismation (though I wanted to for a while).

I remember a day many years ago when I was stuck in traffic at an intersection because of a slowpoke driver ahead of us.  On the rear of her car was a bumper sticker that said, "Hang up and drive."  When I finally passed her and could see into her car, what was she doing?  She was reading her mail. ::)

Yep. Garrison Keillor alludes to this desire for perfection in his radio show A Prarie Home Companion. He concludes every show with the following: "That's the news from Lake Woebegone, where all the men are good-looking, all the women are pretty, and all the children are above average." That line is beautiful satire.

Ever been to one of their Sunday picnics? Six kinds of fried chicken, mashed potatoes with bacon bits smothered in gravy, beans with bacon, egg salad with bacon (and occasionally chicken). Go to one and try, just try to find a dish that doesn't have meat.

I like one mocking evangelicals: "God was my co-pilot, but we crashed in the mountains and I ate Him.:  :o


I am confused, why would you assume this bumper sticker was singling out and mocking evangelicals

St. John Chrysosotom taught that God being our co-pilot, did you not know that?

Grace is also my name,
but when things go wrong
its Courteous whom I blame;
but its Grace who sees me through it.

I think I know what you mean about women "testing the waters."  It took me a year of study--and many times of saying "There's no way I can become Orthodox"--before I finally stepped foot into a Greek Orthodox Church.  I've been a catechumen for almost 9 months now, but I'm still a bit cautious, not jumping into chrismation (though I wanted to for a while).



A year?  That weren't very long...you must not have been a Reformed Reconstructionist Epistemological Post-millinialist.

Oh, definitely. We had a good laugh here over that. :D It's amazing that seemingly everyone thinks they are an above-average driver and consequently have the right to judge everyone else's skill.
Which brings up a good question?  Why is it that in the USA everyone is above average?  Wouldn't this then lead to the conundrum of the average person being above average? ???

We USA citizens have been taught from birth that we could be anybody we wanted to be, do anything we wanted to do and go anywhere we wanted to go; that made us above average in comparison to the rest of the worlds population, I would suggest.

I guess we aren't just sticking to Evangelical bumper stickers anymore, but this is one that I actually like because it is true:

"Give the Devil an inch, and he will become your ruler."

Otherwise, I really dislike these Christian stickers and T-shirts.  While from a certain perspective they are funny in a ridiculous way, they also tend to trivialize God and the Christian faith.  In other words, I find most of them offensive rather than humorous.

We do agree on this. However, and in light of what you and I have just agreed on, those bumper stickers, t-shirt slogans, etc., it is perhaps unfortunate that they do work. We all know dozens of commercial jingles.
